The Research Group for Resource-Efficient Structural Engineering at the Institute for Structural Engineering (IKI) at the BOKU Vienna is led by Professor Dr. Benjamin Kromoser. The main focus and highest goal in research and teaching are a best possible use of the natural resources in the construction sector. Developing new construction methods, digital design and production methods, ecologic optimization of concrete and wood structures, working with innovative construction materials and optimization of the material and energy demand in buildings count to the most important research areas.
